Hunting Custom

Category: Part VI.

Source: Folklore Of The Santal Parganas

Formerly when the men went to a hunt the mistress of the house would
not bathe all the time they were away and when the hunters returned
she met them at the front door and washed their feet and welcomed
them home. The wife of the dehri used to put a dish of water under
her bed at night and if the water turned red like blood they believed
that it was a sign that game had been killed.
